Sunday, Denis Clerc, a trail enthusiast, launched an amazing challenge: to complete a marathon … on his balcony. Containment requires.

This crazy runner, who shares his experiences on social networks, under the name of Zinzin Reporter, took up the challenge: this sports journalist from France 3 ran 42.195 km, or 727 laps on his terrace, in Castelnau-le -Lez (Hérault).

A surprising challenge that Internet users were able to follow live, on video. “5:10, that was exactly the time I wanted to do,” says Denis Clerc, upon arrival, to the applause of his neighbors. I’m very happy to have gone to the end. A lot happened in my head during these 5 hours and 10 minutes of racing. This balcony marathon also meant that we can do things at home. “But the Héraultais warns: you should not take up this type of challenge if you are not used to running.

It was also for a good cause: Internet users made donations during this funny challenge. This Monday morning, more than 2,700 euros had been collected on an online platform. They will be donated to a company or association that manufactures masks.
